Report Writing

by Clare Forrest

Introduction

Writing a report is often a challenge, even for the most gifted communicators.

The commonest error is to start by writing something – anything – just to get going. Before you know it, you’re lost in a sea of words and struggling to get it to make sense. So where do you start?

With planning – and then more planning. It’s only when you have put all your plans in place and then developed your report’s map that you start writing.

Know where you’re going from the start and then plan how you’ll get there – that’s how to write a report that works for you and, more particularly, for your readers.

Whether you’ve written many reports or it’s your first time, this topic will help you to get it right. We cover the whole process of report writing so that, step by step, you’ll learn how to plan and then write an effective report. Easily.
